What is Ho’oponopono?
Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian art of problem solving.
The original Hawaiians used to practice this. Dr. Ihaleakalá Hew Len, my
Ho’oponopono teacher, says that these Hawaiians came from other galaxies.
Many religions are practiced in Hawaii as everywhere else, so not everyone
in Hawaii practices Ho’oponopono. Some people in Hawaii have never heard
Morrnah Simeona (Ihaleakalá’s teacher) brought these teachings to us and
updated them for modern times.
In the past you needed the whole family present, and one by one they would
ask for forgiveness from each other. Now we know there is no one else out
there. It is just our thoughts of the other person, our own memories of the
other person. So we take 100% responsibility and clean those memories.
Whatever gets erased from us gets erased from the other people, our family,
relatives and ancestors, and the earth. It gets erased from everything. You
do not need to be in the presence of others to ask for their forgiveness, now
you can do it in your own home. Memories are all inside of us, as we clean,
whatever comes off of us, will come off of them without the need to be in
Ho’oponopono means “to make it right”, “to correct an error”.
Everything that shows up in our life is a memory, a program playing (an
error) and it shows up in our life to give us an opportunity to let go, to clean,
Ho’oponopono is the delete key on the keyboard of our computer.
See, when you misspell a word, you don’t talk to the monitor and tell the
monitor “How many times did I tell you how to spell that word?” You know
the monitor can’t do anything about it. You can talk to the monitor all day
long, but the monitor looks at you, like: what does she want me to do?
If you want to change something, you need to delete first, create that empty
space in order to put in the right information.
Ho’oponopono takes us back to the void, to zero, so that Inspiration can
show up in our life and guide us. That way we can be at the right time at the
right place.The Easiest Way to Understanding Ho'oponopono
The Clearest Answers to Your Most Frequently Asked Questions 8
What does it mean to be 100% responsible?
You are attracting everything in your life. You don’t realize it, but the
memories playing inside of you attract everything in your life. You hold data,
programs, information, memories that you have accumulated since the
beginning of creation. Therefore you’re responsible for all your memories
that replay as problems that you experience. You were created perfect. You
are perfect. Perfect means no memories, no beliefs, no attachments, no
judgements. But the memories are not perfect, and many of your memories
come from your ancestors. Nothing is what you think it is.
Where do my problems come from?
Most of our problems come from our ancestors. For example, if you know
diabetes runs in your family, you would say: “Oh, I know I will have diabetes
because it will come down the line through my family. However, you can
erase the diabetes before you get it. The same thing with emotional
problems or lack of money or relationship challenges. Most of our memories
come from our ancestors.
What does “cleaning” mean?
Cleaning means when a problem comes up, you are willing to take 100%
responsibility. You are willing to say “I am sorry. Please forgive me for
whatever is in me that is attracting this.” You can use any cleaning tool that
you have. You can also get your own cleaning tools through Inspiration.
Cleansing is a petition to Divinity to correct errors from the past. It’s a way
of giving permission to Divinity to erase whatever is not working and that we
are ready to let go. God knows what we are ready to let go. We don’t.
